About Julie and Dave Gesner
We live outside of Boston with our two children. We love to travel, ski, surf and hang at the beach and pool. While incredibly busy as two full-time working parents, we try to enjoy our life to the fullest with as much vacation time as we can take!
Julie and Dave Gesner purchased this House in 2014
Why Julie and Dave Gesner chose Osterville
We chose Osterville because it is a short 1.5 hour drive from our primary home and Boston. We chose the Wianno area of Osterville because it is a short walk to either the beautiful village of Osterville or the warm waters of Dowses Beach. We chose this house specifically for the kid-friendly location at the end of a quiet dead-end street and it's amazing back-yard. We wanted to be able to ride bikes on the street and relax by the the heated pool after a day at the beach and also have room to BBQ, play yard games and throw a baseball. We love to entertain and this is the perfect home to do so.

This was the perfect house for all of our friends to spend our long weekend. It offered plenty space for the adults and lots of games for the kids. We hope to go back during the summer to barbecue and enjoy the beach.

This home was the perfect solution for the weekend!
We rented this home for a sweet sixteen birthday weekend for my daughter and her friends. The home was in perfect working order, spacious and extremely clean. We are planning on renting this home again this summer.
Classic Wianno area Cape Cod summer home in the beautiful town of Osterville. Private, heated pool with a large, beautifully landscaped fenced back yard. Plenty of room for multiple families. Flat, dead end street which is perfect for learning to bike-ride.
